HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SCORPIO!
As a Scorpio dog, you're a power-loving and passionate critter. Intense is your middle name. And your no-nonsense, take-charge attitude helps you to hang in there like a wolf stalking its prey. What makes you a good dog: Like a warm fuzzy, you can be cuddly and comforting to the max. You're super sensitive and very, very deep, too. There's no such thing as a shallow Scorpy canine. In fact, your amazing Lassie-like sixth sense makes you man's best friend.
What makes you a bad dog: Your little games (from hiding bones to stalking the postman) are shocking just like a Scorpion's sting. And those temper tantrums (which stem from the green-eyed monster) cause both dogs and humans to flee fast and far.
Grr-eat matches: Other emotional compatible water signs (like Cancer and Pisces) can touch your heart and tender-loving canine soul.
Dog-loving celebrity: Charles Schulz

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)
The downside is, you're going to be a latchkey dog during midmonth. Blame it on the New Moon on November 15. To help cope with the your pre-holiday blues howl to the tunes that are left on just for you, the "poor dog." The upside: After Turkey Day, you'll get leftovers, guaranteed. Grr-eat days: 13, 14
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21)
During the first week of November, sibling rivalry (with dog or cat roomies) may wreak havoc on your nerves. Blame it on Venus (planet of emotion). However, the rest of the month you'll be a typical happy and carefree Sagittarian pup because humans will be hanging out a lot more. That means fewer squabbles, more play periods. Grr-eat days: 15, 16
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20)
Whoops! Watch out Cap – you may be a major klutz around the New Moon on November 15. But don't despair. A gate barring you from the Thanksgiving decorations is enough to keep most dogs out of harms way. Look l-o-n-e-l-y and you'll up the odds of getting pre- and post-holiday turkey treats. Grr-eat days: 18, 19
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19)
Thanks to energy-boosting Mars, Aquarian dogs are going to be super-energized during the excitement of the holiday season. In response, you might bark after hours or growl at guests. Your best bet: Retreat daily to your "comfort spot" to regroup so you won't overdo and hear those human words "No!" or "Pound" this month. Grr-eat days: 20, 21
PISCES (February 20 - March 20)
Your family will be packing up and heading out with you in tow by the New Moon on November 15. No kidding, Pi. Go ahead – cope with the hustle bustle (you know the drill). After all, you're going on VACATION!!! Read: New people, new places. Grr-eat days: 23, 24
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
While your schedule may be topsy-turvy right now, it's only temporary. The Full Moon on November 1 is your cue to be obedient this month. Hint: Do as you're told like good assertive Ram dogs will do, from time to time. Yep, that means obey basic commands upon THEIR command. It'll keep the peace, pooch. Grr-eat days: 25, 26
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
Until after the New Moon on November 15, you may be heeling on eggshells. Play dumb to the new stray, shelter pet or humanoid and rise above their petty jealousies. Nudge your people to take you out for daily walks (easy for dependable Taurean dogs to do). It'll keep you both grounded, oh earthy one, and boost your canine-human bond. Grr-eat days: 28, 29
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
Hey, it's pooch pampering time. During the Full Moon on November 1 and throughout the New Moon on November 15 de-stress yourself (which is hard to do for action-oriented Gemini dogs). Play couch potato and cuddle up with your human pals. One more thing: Toss a bark of canine joy to win your human's heart. Grr-eat days: 3, 4
CANCER (June 22 - July 23)
If you want to keep peace on the home front (and Moonchild hounds do) share your good dog will during the Full Moon on November 1 and around midmonth – times of tension. That means lose the crab-like attitude if your humans leave you with the pet sitter or take you to doggy daycare. Save your whining for next month. Grr-eat days: 5, 6
LEO (July 24 - August 23)
Um ... you're going to be working like a dog. Leo canines can count on guard dog duty to obedience classes. Go ahead – play the subservient dog game and after the month's end you'll end up on Santa's perfect pooch list. A bonus tip: Hide your fave bones or toys so you'll get a fresh supply. A dog's work is never done. Grr-eat days: 16, 25
VIRGO (August 24 - September 23)
You'll want to avoid nerve-wracking dog-dog aggression, especially during the New Moon on November 15. To keep order all month, dump your Top Dog position. Act easygoing – like you can tolerate anything and everyone. Your winning performance will fool them all and soothe your fragile Virgoan canine nerves. Grr-eat days: 9, 10
LIBRA (September 24 - October 23)
It's your month (starting on the first Full Moon on November 1) to pair up with your humans and get out of Dodge. Whether it's a five-star hotel or the budget motel route, it's always fun for the Libra pooch to tag along – with or without all those extra perks. Psst! Canine goodies and outdoor romps are part of the deal. Grr-eat days: 3, 11
